ARI TAHAN’s upcoming record “Idiot” will no doubt be the single which singlehandedly sees to her ascension from the underground. She’s already had ears pricking up at BBC introducing, it’s only a matter of time before her radio-ready hits receive the same accolades as the likes of Joss Stone, Paloma Faith and London Grammar. Yes, her vocal ability and charismatic accessibility really is on the same level.
The sentiment behind Idiot may have been rooted in vulnerability, yet through the single, you’re treated to pure unapologetic strength. Whilst many artists may come off sounding aggressive with this approach, ARI TAHAN ensures that there’s plenty of Soul in the single to leave you captivated and either left with empathy or resonance.
